KeePass plugin installation on a RDS

Using Remote Desktop Manager and KeePass on a Remote Desktop Service require multiple steps.


The installation of Remote Desktop Manager follows Terminal Services / Remote Desktop Services.

Make sure that the installation of KeePass was successful and is not on a network drive.

KeePass plugin

  1. Follow the steps in Download the KeePass plugin.
  2. Unzip the files in the installation folder of KeePass (e.g., C:\Program Files (x86)\KeePass Password Safe 2).
  3. KeePass installation path (File – Settings – Path – Configure Installation Path), has to be configured in default.cfg refereed in Terminal Services / Remote Desktop Services.

To manually edit default.cfg, adjust the path and add the line below in context.

C:\Program Files (x86)\KeePass Password Safe 2

Whenever Remote Desktop Manager is started and it detects a new default.cfg file, a dialog window will appear.

By selecting Use new configuration (lose mine), the user's configuration is simply overwritten. If you only wish to update the Remote Desktop Manager license key after a renewal, choose Retrieve new registration only.
